Oddero Barolo 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Barolo is a gorgeous wine that is already well fleshed out despite the youthfulness of the fruit. The results are compelling and rich with velvety overtones of Amarena cherry, baking spice, tobacco, wet earth and sweet nutmeg. The oak element is evident (this base Barolo aged in botte grande from Slavonian oak for 30 months) but well on its way to finding integration within the general fleshiness of the wine. Given the high quality of fruit, this base Barolo should boast a long drinking window." *-Wine Advocate (91 Points)*

Oddero:

Our winery is nestled in the Langhe hills, overlooking a sea of vines. Just as in the past, only grapes from family-owned vineyards are used to make Oddero wines. “Poderi e Cantine Oddero” (Oddero Estate and Winery) is a historic name among Barolo producers. Run for generations by men, it is now in the hands of Mariacristina and Mariavittoria, the daughters of Giacomo Oddero, Barolo patriarch and a man whose fame reaches beyond the Langhe. The company dedicates its full attention to the winemaking process, blending ancient wisdom and modern production techniques with patience and tenacity: from the pruning of the vines to the pressing of the grapes, up to the ageing of selected vintages. Oddero vines grow in some of the best and sunniest sites (known as sôri) on the hills in the Barolo and Barbaresco zones and beyond. Read less

Huge sweet herb stem, carob, dark, slightly earthy and slightly prosciutto scented aromas are joined by a hint of wood smoke on the nose. With big, ripe tannins, this shows density on the palate, and fine balance with the potential for elegance. There is lovely freshness to the fruit, mineraly and dark, with slightly jammy wild strawberry, and a little black currant displaying superb tension on the palate and through the finish which shows some slight toughness to the tannin. A super 2010 Barolo. 92pts
